    Have appt for Bibbidi Bobbidi at 8:20a but park opens at 9a.How do I get to MK (from Wilderness Lodge) Are boats&busses running? Can my husband&grandson enter MK when I do? Don’t wanna mess this up cuz this appt (+breakfast) was tough to get!

    Hello Susan!

    You have got a great morning planned and I am here to help you make it there in plenty of time! Complimentary transportation to the parks begins running about 45 minutes prior to the park opening. If Magic Kingdom Park opens at 9 am, this won't be an option that would get you there in time. What I suggest doing is using the Minnie Van Service that is offered via the Lyft app.

    Here are the steps to request a Minnie Van in the morning:
    • Open the app and select your Walt Disney World destination (which will be Magic Kingdom Park in your case)
    • Confirm your pick-up location and tap "Select Minnie Van" if Minnie Van service is not the default vehicle type displayed, you will need to swipe through your vehicle options until Minnie Van Service is displayed
    You'll want to be sure to use the Minnie Vans and not a standard Lyft car due to where they are allowed to drop you off. A Minnie Van is going to be able to take you all the way up to the entrance of Magic Kingdom Park, where the buses drop off. A standard Lyft is only going to be able to take you to the transportation and Ticket Center. From there, you'd have to take a boat or ride the monorail to the Magic Kingdom Park and we've already discovered they won't start running in time to get you there promptly. The price for a Minnie Van is based on your location and distance to where you're going. Disney's Wilderness Lodge is located fairly close to Magic Kingdom Park so I wouldn't expect a high fee. If it were me, I'd be in the lobby requesting a Minnie Van sometime between 7:00 and 7:15 in the morning. You'll want to allow plenty of time for traffic, entering the park and getting to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.

    I hope you have a fantastic day!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
